The time came. Bert and Debbie are off.
I’m Jean Wilund, one of their friends helping them with their blog.
I’m sending out this update to let you know they’ve finished their packing, accomplished last minute things, visited friends one more time, and said their goodbyes.

Look forward to updates from Debbie as soon as she can. Much to do!
Thanks for your continued prayers and faithful encouragement.

The time has come.
Time to finish the packing, get the last minute things, see friends one more time, and say goodbyes! Even though we’ve done this many times, it doesn’t get any easier but we’re ready to go and start this new chapter in our lives.
